Jog man: volume one


He ran and ran, none could stop him
A jogging prodigy, a man
With with a lung span so great it's
Said that he could race from the
Sickle moon and back and still keep face

He runs because the world runs at a 
Measureless pace- It really quite stuns
Me to think about how fast he might run
If the world would collapse and the 
Universe would disperse 

I talk of the man who jogs
As if he is some sort of diety
That he lives and dies by the draw of the breath
But truly the only thing godlike is
His devotion to fleeing his past

He was a normal boy who grew to 
Be a normal man
But normal things did not
Happen to this normal man

He had a friend who I shall call
The man who collects stamps
For he was undoubtably 
A person who collected postage
And also a man

The man who collects stamps lived on 
The street that collects leaves and 
The two men would go to each other's houses
And talk and drink and dance
For without a doubt the two of them
Kissed like they did in France

Both- the two- had wives
That trampled in on their lives
They wanted to live a 
Matchbox romance
But their partners 
Cut them with knives

They would sneak out at night 
To catch the movies when
Their wives had to clean the dishes
But before they knew it 
Against their best wishes 
Knew that their partners 
Sleep with the fishes

It was the wretched idea
Of the man who collects postage
That the sky was a storm and
Perfection was in sight
A world where hiding and 
Biding your time would 
Not be the norm

The man who jogs went
Along with the plan
But not without trepidation
For what was a man without his dear wife
A man without a maid

So he grabbed for the knife that the 
Wife was chopping with
And shoved it down 
14 inches into her windpipe

A real bloody mess the 
Whole ordeal was
All for an open relationship
An intensive cleaning job

The man who collects stamps
Continued chopping the onion
With the same bloody knife 
That skewered the cook

A wonderful dinner he 
Made for them all
Corpse and two lovers
Though his curfew was nine
For he still had a woman 
The love of his life

So he made suit
An returned home to the 
Woman of the house
She was making breakfast for dinner
He figured he'd help
He bashed her head into the pan
Making a nice nutritous breakfast
Love pancakes
